They’ve been doing their homework at Windsor Sonoma to judge by this Cab, which is a vast improvement over past releases. It’s a pleasure to drink now for its rich, forward flavors of cherries, blackberries, currants and cocoa, soft tannins, and lush overlay of caramelized oak. It finishes sweetly smooth, although it’s technically dry.
This is a firm, dry, minerally Chardonnay. It’s not blockbuster rich, but it is clean and vibrant and elegant. The flinty flavors are enriched with notes of pineapples and green apples, while oak and lees give hints of buttered toast and sour cream. A very fine, food-friendly wine that sommeliers should be aware of.
Here’s a sweetly delicious young Pinot whose flavors are designed to please. It floods the mouth with raspberry and cherry jam, anise, cola, pepper and sandalwood notes, brightened with crisp acidity. Drink now.
A very nice wine for the price. It’s bone dry and high in acidity, with a crisp tartness that’s just what you want in Sauvignon Blanc. The flavors are pleasant, of oranges, citrons, limes and green apples.
